Advanced Canine Rehabilitation Center (ACR) wants to help you build the right conditioning schedule for your dog, based on their age and current level of conditioning. We believe proper conditioning for sporting dogs will help avoid overload and stress while increasing strength and flexibility. Our resources will enable you to optimize performance on the field and prevent injuries.

Conditioning for the Sporting Canine covers everything you need to know about the basics of making a comprehensive conditioning program through lecture and lab demonstration. 

Conditioning results in increased strength and overall health by following a regular exercise program.

Proper conditioning helps to optimize performance on the field and helps to prevent injuries.

In this self-paced online program, you will learn how to effectively and safely condition your Canine for your specific sport, to achieve peak performance.

  1. Sit Extension
  2. Standing Rhythmic Stabilization

  4. Plank and Pre-Push Up
  5. Sit to Stand

Plus suggestions for how to progress your dog from Level 1 to Level 2, and from Level 2 to Level 3 so that your canine reaches its optimal fitness level.
